Open Class (90 minutes)
Prerequisite: Yoga 1 or instructor approval
An Open Class is a classical hatha yoga session typically lasting 90 minutes. If you have some yoga experience, this is a class that encompasses proper breathing, flexibility, strength and vitality in the body while calming the mind. Because there is no competition in yoga, not even with yourself, you will learn to enjoy much more than just a healthy body from the practice and at the same time progress in all areas. Not suitable for complete beginners or new to Sivananda system; all students are advised to take a beginners' course before attending an open class.
A typical Open Class includes:
Initial relaxation (Savasana)
Breath exercises (Pranayama: Kapalabhati and Anuloma Viloma)
Sun salutation (Surya Namaskar)
12 basic postures (Asanas)
Final relaxation (Savasana)
No advance registration.
